One Way to Get Rid of Student Loans: Not Paying Them?

Pin It  

paying bills

Student loan debt can be overwhelming, as can the myriad options for handling that debt. Forgiveness, forbearance, discharge, payment plans…It’s enough to make anyone’s head spin, even if you do have that fancy college degree under your belt.

Which is why the folks at SALT (a site by nonprofit organization American Student Assistance) have released a new ebook to help you better understand the options available to you. Cleverly titled 60+ Ways to Get Rid of Your Student Loans (Without Paying Them), the ebook breaks down your various options in an easy-to-understand format.

As SALT writes:

The number of options out there is dizzying and confusing, and we think it’s cruel to make you figure it out on your own…We figured you might want some help, and you might not like that help to come in the form of a big, intimidating table or webpage. So we wrote this easy-to-navigate book and did our best to collect everything in one place.

You can check out the full post, and download the guide, here.

What option(s) have you found best for handling your student loan debt?

    Here’s the one I used: Join the Army, get your bachlor’s while on active duty, and then do your graduate work on the GI Bill.

    That also supposes you live to be able to use those benefits, but who says there’s any sure things in life anyway?
